Default Bamboo rod tube

A gift from my uncle. Now I have to make a rod to fit it.

These are for sale if anyone is interested. Other material than bamboo too.

Now that IS unique! Off to Google.

Edit: Lee, Did I miss the obvious? Didn't see anything about the rod tube on your web site.

Super! I so want to connect that link up onto several other Boards. In the fishing equipment business there is little that's 'unique,' a 'one off' sort of thing. You've got one there.

If you'd be so kind, when you've go your web site up-dated, PM me and let me know. The "Boo-Boys" will be all over that thing!

I think you're going to need another tube to protect the tube

Possibly. But I'd have a heavy wrapper of Plastic tube to put over the tube too. (Now that was atrocious use of the English Language.)

But you'd be 'one of one' when you pulled that out of the back of the car at a 'Boo 'Clave.' Worth an extra 100 points in the "Cool Factor."

Darn, Lee!!!!! That is one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful, rod tubes I've ever seen!

I don't want one for my boo rod ... I just want to hold it and carry it around!!!

Lee, that's nice.
Now here's something to dwell on, take your bamboo pieces and split them into 2" squares. Glue them up and turn them for reel seats. Example- your third picture down (open other end) the way it's stacked looks cool. Or not.

Wink Re: Bamboo rod tube

Posted the link to this thread on three (or was it four?) other sites ... Guys are going 'I GOTTA GET ME ONE OF THOSE THINGS!'

Lee, there's an old one liner that I've always found to be true:

"Be careful of what you wish, your wish could come true." Passed that one-liner off to a custom reel maker months ago when 'I' started to 'promote' the reels he builds (no financial connection short of my credit card number) as they are really 'over the top' in construction and something the 'average guy' could really afford to buy.

When all that started he was selling/machining one-two reels per week. Now he works on Saturday's and Sundays.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
